I have a Job Interview/Exam tomorrow.
May 5, 2008 2:01am CST
this morning around 11:00pm in the morning, i received a call from IBM HRD. He interviewed me over the phone. im not that prepared but i just took a deep breath and agreed for an interview. it took us 10 minutes talking over the phone. Luckily i answered his question confidently, though some questions were basic. He asked me to come to their office in Ortigas tomorrow for an exam. actually im having second thoughts about it because its not really my field. but anyway, there's no harm in trying. please do include me in your prayers. thanks and have a nice day.

hope you passed your exams 5 days ago. being an applicant is not easy to deal with many difficulties you encounter. after rendering my 6 years on service, that would be enough for me to being employed. i am now more concern on doing a business that being employed. i am free from my boss instead i am now a boss.

yes i did pass the exam. but i didn't came back for the interview coz my mom doesn't want me to work in a call center. i had an opportunity in PGH but my back-up doesn't have a high position to insist my application at the HRD. now im bargaining with my mom if she won't allow me to work in the province. i'll work in the call center! please do pray for me! i really need it now!!

I would surely like to see you in this job because IBM is really a good company with proven track record. I wish you best of luck and wish that you do well in your interview. Try to follow the basic instinct while attending an interview and do believe on yourself because the important thing in an interview is self-confidence.

ibm..hmm..let me share you my experience with ibm recruitment.. i was a walk-in applicant in IBM (the one in eastwood, libis) for an HR post. i took the exam right then and there. i passed and was initially interviewed on the same day. after the initial interview, i was scheduled for another interview the following day. and so i came, on time. and i've waited for like two hours (i know that waiting is part and parcel of the hiring process). but for pete's sake, don't ask me to wait for someone who is not in the office. yes, i was asked to wait for a guy who called in saying he's running a little late (or whatnot). so i waited---again. i went out to have my lunch. i returned by one in the afternoon only be told that the guy is sick and can't come to the office. whaattt!!?!! i left.
